Experiencing Interruptions?


Why did you decide to leave your country?
How was the journey on the way to where you are now?
What is your hope for the future?

I travelled to Tijuana with these three questions for migrants from Central America. I wanted people in America to be able to see a person and hear their voice as they told their stories. I was then able to come alongside some amazing organizations in the United States who are serving these migrants once they are permitted to enter into the country. Amidst the various political opinions in our social climate, there are still thousands of people that are crying for help. Sometimes, we simply need to be reminded of a person’s humanity, regardless of what side of the border they stand on.
